ADMISSION Applicants for admission to regular undergraduate courses at Berkeley must be at least sixteen years of age, must give satisfactory references concerning moral character, and must, by examination or by certificates from accredited schools or by other certificates which shall be satisfactory to the faculties, give evidence of proficiency in such of the subjects as are designated below as required for the college and status sought. Applicants must also appear before the University medical examiners and pass a satisfactory physical examination, to the end that the health of the university community may be safe-guarded.

A detailed statement of the methods of admission and a list of accredited schools will be found in later pages of this circular.

The normal time for admission to the University is August, but students are also admitted in January. However, the work of many of the curricula is so arranged that a student cannot enter the University in January and complete his college course in four years. A student who intends to enter the University in January should communicate before December 1 with the Recorder of the Faculties, stating the curriculum he intends to pursue and his preparation in detail, in order that he may be advised if entrance in January is practicable.

LIST OF PREPARATORY SUBJECTS

Units of Credit.--The amount of work represented both by preparatory or high school subjects and by the University courses is specified quantitatively. In the University a unit signifies one hour per week of recitation or lecture, with preparation therefor, during one half-year. A course of study taken in the preparatory school for one year at five periods per week is valued at 3 units. Laboratory hours not requiring preparation are estimated at a lower rate than recitations and lectures.

* SUBJECT A, oral and written expression in English, SUBJECT B, ability to read a foreign language, ancient modern (French, German, Greek, Italian, Latin, Spanish). Subjects A and B are requirements for junior standing in the University, not for matriculation. A is a requirement for junior standing in all the colleges at Berkeley and B a requirement for junior standing in all the colleges except the four-year courses in engineering and chemistry. These subjects are mentioned here because of the fundamental importance of a proper high school training in meeting these requirements. Credit is given upon examination only, not upon certificate nor upon the formal completion of any course of study. These examinations are regularly held every half-year, subject A, immediately preceding the final examinations in December and May, and subject B during the first week of instruction in August and January.

† The dagger indicates subjects for which equivalent courses are offered in the University. For further description of these courses reference should be made to the annual Announcement of Courses.

Subjects hab', 15a', 1567, and 15c1 represent the minimum credit in Latin, French, German. and Spanish, respectively—one year of high school work. Such credit is ordinarily given only upon recommendation, not upon examination.

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS Any person sixteen years of age or over may enter any of the colleges of letters, sciences or engineering as a regular student, without deficiency, if he is able to meet the following requirements: ENGLISH, two years

6 units (Subject 1)*. MATHEMATICS, four years

12 (Subjects 2, 3, 4a, 46, 12a2). FOREIGN LANGUAGE, four years

12 Latin (subjects 6a and 6b);† and German (1562) or French

(1502) or Greek (8) or advanced Latin (7). HISTORY, one year

3 (Subjects 5, 10, 13a, 136). SCIENCE, two years

6 Physics (11)† and chemistry (126). DRAWING, two years

6 Freehand (16) and Geometrical (17).

TOTAL

45 units

HOWEVER, No COLLEGE REQUIRES ALL THE SUBJECTS LISTED ABOVE; but each permits certain modifications in the requirements, which enable students to gain time for elective subjects in the high school if they choose to do so.

A student who desires to modify his high school course from the standard given above should carefully study the requirements listed below for all curricula which he might eventually choose at the University.

MATRICULATION GROUP I The minimum requirements for complete matriculation in the COLLEGE OF LETTERS, the COLLEGE OF SOCIAL SCIENCES, and the COLLEGE OF NATURAL SCIENCES (the colleges of general culture) and the COLLEGE OF COMMERCE are as follows: ENGLISH, two years

6 units (Subject 1).

The numbers in parentheses refer to the matriculation subjects listed on a pre. ceding page; for example, 2 is plane geometry.

+The University does not offer courses equivalent to subject 6 (elementary Latin), This subject must be taken in the high school, if at all. Elementary physics and elementary chemistry are offered in the summer session of the University, but not in the fall or spring sessions.

MATHEMATICS, two years

6 Plane Geometry (2)* and Elem. Algebra (3). FOREIGN LANGUAGES, two years

6 Any combination from the following: Latin (6),† Greek (8), French (15a), German (156),

Spanish (15c). HISTORY, one year

3 U. S. (5), or Ancient (10), or Medieval and Modern (13a),

or English (13b). NATURAL SCIENCE (taken with laboratory work in classes of thirdand fourth-year pupils), one year

3 Physics (11)ř, or Chemistry (126) i, or Botany (12c), or

Zoology (128), or Physiology (121). OPTIONAL

6 Any combination from the following:

Advanced Mathematics (4a, 4b, 12a).
Additional foreign language, ancient or modern (6, 7, 8, 9,

15).

fourth-year pupils (11, 126, 120, 120, 12f). ELECTIVE

15 (These may include not more than 9 units chosen from sub

jects 18 to 21 and high school subjects not listed by the
University).

TOTAL

45 units

The candidate for admission must have chosen his preparatory subjects in such a way as to have a total of 12 units of "advanced” subjects. Advanced subjects are as follows: 4a1, 4a2, 46, 5, 7, 9, 11, 12 (excluding sciences given in the first and second years of the high school), 13b, 14, 15a3, 15a4, 1553, 15b4, 15c3, 15c4.

Any student who has fulfilled the requirements of Group 1 will be admitted to some one of the colleges named above. However, he will find his choice of studies much restricted unless he has chosen his optional and elective units with due regard to the curriculum he intends to pursue at the University. Requirements and recommendations for preparatory studies have been made by the University; these will be found on pages 59 to 62 of this circular.

* The numbers in parentheses refer to the matriculation subjects listed on a preceding page; for example, 2 is plane geometry.
